I have stayed in this hotel several times and it has been a very good option for its price-quality position. It is in the heart of Helsinki next to Kamppi shopping center and few hundred meters to the central train station. Rooms are in good condition but bathrooms feel like they need to be renewed. Breakfast is very satisfactory with... More

Already a bit worn out hotel with the flavours of good old Soviet. Rooms and some common area do require more or less TLC. But the location is great at very center of Helsinki. Staff is very polite and helpful.

A large hotel that always seemed to be busy in the lobby and breakfast areas. However, staff was efficient and waiting times were minimal. First night was not satisfactory because of the music and noise from the night club across the street. Was moved to a quieter room. There was renovation work going on, but we were up in the... More

I travelled with a group of friends for stag party. This seemed to offer good value in terms of budget and quality via BA Holidays. It was easy to get to the hotel using the airport shuttle bus which stops about 5mins walk from the hotel. The hotel itself is clean and classy with a grand entrance lobby. Check-in was... More

I've visited this place several times during many years. It's a huge hotel in the very centre of everything. Usually you can also get very good deals here, so it is also a good value hotel. That being said, it _is_ a huge place with a lot of people, which you can notice especially in the check in area and... More

Stayed here again after a 25 year gap! Hotel well-located, close to the railway and bus stations and the main shopping area. Metro station also very close by. Check in a little slow - some people ahead of me seemed to have a problem, although the process was efficient enough in my case. Staff friendly. Comfortable room, modern and well-appointed.... More

- Room is old especially the toilet - Location is convenient: 5 mins to central railway station, 20 mins walk to most of Helsinki's tourist spot - Nearby: Shopping malls were close by and no worries of running out of food choices - Staff: Extremely friendly and helpful - Internet: Wifi connection all over the hotel.

I was in Helsinki to attend the SLUSH 2015 Convention. The hotel was selected as part of a group offering so the rates were concessional. The hotel is very conveniently located for someone in town for business. There are shopping malls nearby for late evening shopping. An adjoining restaurant offers a good selection of meals and drinks. There is also... More

Good basic room, great breakfast, good food in the hotel's restaurant, ok sauna, great location to access the Kamppi shopping center and to walk to any downtown targets. Service was good, except the room cleaning was missed one of the 8 days I stayed this time.
